Tuesday night, the world famous Harlem Globetrotters made their way to Thompson Boling Area.

Our own Todd Howell was asked to join in the game. Todd grabbed an offensive rebound early, but missed his chance at a wide open three trick shot.

Smiles and laughter could be seen all around the arena as the Globetrotters put on a great show for those in attendance.

Ultimately, that's what one player said being a Globetrotter is all about.

"Well my thing is it's great to be a part of an organization that's been around for 88 years. I've been to 75 countries in nine seasons and my most favorite thing is that no matter what country I'm in, no matter where I'm at, what language,I just come to make families smile. For an hour and 45 minutes, hour and 30 whatever it may be, whatever's going on in your life, sit back enjoy this handsome face and just smile," said Globetrotter Big Easy.

The Globetrotters have been entertaining families since they were formed in 1926.
